Lei ChicIt's 10:00 Monday morning. You're already dreaming about 5:00 Friday night for days.

You can't wait to detour off your routine daily path from the parking garage to your cubicle, then back home for nuked take-out leftovers and Sex and the City reruns.

How about a reroute, to relax in Waikiki? The Moana Lani spa, in the historic Westin Moana Surfrider hotel, has just launched a heavenly "Rediscover Wellness package" just for Kamaaina, designed to knock your off-kilter life back into balance.

You begin at Waikiki's only oceanside spa with a moment of contemplation over a handful of sea and volcanic salts. The alaea will later be released back into the ocean, taking your negative thoughts with you. Then experience a 50-minute classic massage with aromatherapy to work out whatever worked you up throughout the week. Finally, an 80-minute Hawaiian vanilla and clay facial or body wrap to help you unwind.

It's not just 2+ hours of bliss away from your phone. Spa visitors also receive all-day access to the soothing lounge, whirlpool, steam room, and sauna; all fronting floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the sounds and scents of the seashore inside. If you want, add on a complimentary heart-pumping session in the Moana Surfrider's workout room, overlooking busy Kalakaua Avenue.

And on the way out, browse the exclusive beauty and skincare lines in the gift shop meant to let you bring your spa day back to your own bathroom.

The Rediscover Wellness package is available to kamaaina only through the end of February for a special price of $260. The oceanfront couple massage room is available for an added fee. Call 808.237.2535 for reservations.
